40 episodes

Inspired by Lectio Divina and the Collatio, this podcast offers the listener sessions of guided, meditative, listening prayer around different passages of scripture.



Each episode will take you in to a deep place of listening in the Lord's presence where you will hear a gospel story read very slowly so that you can savour each word, imagine the scene vividly and perhaps even discern what the Holy Spirit is speaking into your own life through the text.



This prayer experience is ideal if you would like to interact with the Bible in a new way, deepen your prayer life, or understand Gods love for you more fully.



If you find Lectio Divina beneficial in a group but struggle to do it on your own, this podcast will provide the guidance you need.





Each episode will begin with a brief introduction to the text, guide the listener into a deep place of prayer, read the passage very slowly, twice, and then offer some questions for reflection or journaling.

I wish to thank and acknowledge Fr Finbarr Lynch SJ of Manresa House, Dublin who introduced and instructed me in the Collatio, from which all that I share with you in this podcast is derived.

    Guided Meditation – the Feast of your Life

    Guided Meditation – the Feast of your Life

    Oops! That was embarrassing! Unfortunately an unedited version of this meditation was released earlier today. The updated version is now linked to this post.







    “You prepare a table before me… my cup overflows” -Psalm 23







    In this guided meditation you are invited to imagine the whole of your life spread out before you, as a great feast laid on a table, to call to mind the gifts and nourishment which are poured out for your encouragement and sustenance each day.







    May it be a blessing to you in this season of feasting and gratitude.







    And thank you, for your presence and engagement with these meditations and the Contemplative at Home community. You are a gift to me.







    Grace and Peace,Lissy

    Lectio Divina – Psalm 136

    Lectio Divina – Psalm 136

    In this meditation we loosely follow our theme of hospitality in its guise of presence: being present with time, attention, love and care.







    Psalm 139 intersperses “his steadfast love endures forever” into every single line of the song, meditating on the presence of Divine love in and over and through all of life.







    What might this Presence have to teach us about being present?







    Every blessing as you pray.

    Lectio Divina – Genesis 18

    Lectio Divina – Genesis 18

    We continue our exploration of hospitality as we pray a Lectio Divina with Genesis 18:1-14, when Abraham is visited by the three guests who are mysteriously “the LORD.”







    As you listen to the text I invite you to be alert to the generosity and grace which is offered by both parties in this exchange.







    I wonder what will stir in you as you pray with this foundational text to all the Abrahamic faiths?







    Grace and peace.

    Imaginative Contemplation – The Prodigal’s Brother

    Imaginative Contemplation – The Prodigal’s Brother

    This audio meditation with Luke 15 offers an imaginative contemplation with the older brother of the prodigal son, inviting you to enter the story from another perspective and find safe space to express your anger, dissapointment, self-righteousness, frustration.







    “My son,” the father said, “You are always with me, and everything I have is yours”







    Every blessing as you pray.

    Imaginative Contemplation – Prodigal Son

    Imaginative Contemplation – Prodigal Son

    In this imaginative contemplation we focus on the father and the younger son in the parable Jesus tells in Luke 15. (We will think about the older son next week)







    After two readings of the text, we enter the story ourselves, using our imaginations to open us up to how God may wish to speak to us through this text.







    For more on imaginative prayer, as suggested by Ignatius of Loyola, keep your eye out for this week’s newsletter.







    Grace and Peace, my friends.







    And every blessing.

    Evening Examen

    Evening Examen

    An evening examen, a mindful audio prayer to help you review your day, to observe where God has been and where God might be leading you.







    This month I’m thinking about Ignatian spirituality, to which the examen prayer of review is central. This recording offers a fairly traditional examen practice, and reflects the way I’m engaging with the examen in my own prayer life at present.







    I hope it is of use to you.

A lovely restorative moment

What a lovely way to practice prayer. The mix of mindfulness, centering, and scripture in this way is such a injection of peace to my day.
